Betweeen 7:45 EST and 8:35am EST today, my compeau.net (google apps domain) email stopped fetching on my TP and my Pre 3. This happened once before, about a year and a half ago, at which time I thought I was being hacked, and rapidly changed my email login-- However, this time I was able to get to a PC to establish that my PC works fine for fetching, so it is isolated to just the WebOS devices (again?). I see online that this occurred for a period of two days about a year ago (April 28-April 30 of 2012) and am wondering what anyone else knows, or has experienced relative to this.

Message here, or email me at mike.compeau@gmail.com, as that address still works. =) Thanks folks, you're great!
Mike

could have been a google services issue... I woke up around 6:30 PST this morning and my Pre3 and TP both had the notification to check my google login. I have two accounts on each device, only one of them needed the password reentered and appear to have been fine since. Just a thought.


Oh and check this too
Unable to log into Gmail

I'll check on PC.

Email began working about 80 min later. Re-entered password, and voila! All working again. Stupid Google. )sigh(

I think that there was an issue with having to re-enter Google email credentials from time to time.

I do know that syncing contacts and events may not happen because the webOS client does not rate-limit its requests, so Google with drop them... I haven't discovered a work around... yet.

No, was a problem with the Google servers.

Now, it's all right.
